Need some advice on a minor issue

    I recently went on vacation to London and Paris with the b&c, and we stayed with and vacationed with a friend of mine and his partner. I gave my friend copies of all the pictures I took, with a promise to put all the pics my bf took onto disc and mail them to him.

    I was going to include two framed pictures of them that I took, one for each of them for their desks at work or whatever. Would it be weird to include a framed picture of me and the b&c? I've got a nice one of us in front of Notre Dame.

    All right, I assume that means another couple.

    I wouldn't be able to give you advise, I personally don't like framed pictures. I was at a friend ones and when I got in her room I noticed a picture of us taken on a holiday and I thought it was weird. I can't explain why.

    I do like the new digital frames where you can make a slide of pictures. But that would be a bit too expensive for a random gift.

    I guess these aren't framed pictures of you guys doing the nasty?

    If you're inclined to send the framed pic of you and the BF, then you should do it. The problem with gifts that are that personal, is the recipient may feel obligated to display it. So, if you send the pic, maybe add a note that you had such a good time that you wanted to include a picture of yourself and the BF as an extra "thank you" and you hope they enjoy it, but don't feel that they have to have it on display (or something to that effect.) Keep it lighthearted and I'm sure they'll appreciate the gesture.

    It would be lovely, in my view. They could decide for themselves whether to display them or not.

    We stayed at our friends' New Hampshire vacation home this past September, and I took some pics of it. In all immodesty, I used to be a pretty fair photographer, going back to the early 1960s. So I framed some pics of them and their house, as a gift, that they display in their Florida home right now.

    I'm gonna frame some new pics from a week ago, when one of them got his doctorate. I suspect they'll be pleased once again. I say you should go for it.

    Go ahead. I'm sure they would like iticon_smile.gif In the end they will at least have another picture frame.

    -My best friend has a wall of pictures. At one time there was a picture of me and my ex. Also a picture of her and her ex. However, she always put another photo hidden behind the two so she could swap them if didn't work.

    I remember telling her I left my ex. . . She said, "So I can go ahead and swap that photo of you two out?"

    At risk of stirring up religious wars, that sounds like just the sort of situation in which the "create book" or "create card" feature of iPhoto (or pagan equivalent) would come in handy. I seem to recall that they even handle delivery.

    You refer to your partner as "The Ball and Chain ?"
    Sure, go ahead and send the framed picture.
    They can chuck it as soon as you guys break up...

    I though the minor issue referred to jail bait.
